This citrus fruit has been cultivated for 3,000 years and belongs to the Rutaceae family. Originating in Kashmir, it was first brought to Europe via the Muslim conquests of the Middle Ages and the Portuguese and Spaniards later began planting it in the Americas. Characterised by its acidity, the lemon is today recognised for its many medicinal properties and its fresh, invigorating fragrance.
